Homeschooling and laminators go together like peanut butter and jelly! But what’s the best machine for your needs? Today I’m sharing the machine I’ve been using for nearly my entire homeschooling lifetime. It’s the Xyron 9” ezLaminator™.

This machine is different from most laminators in that it is a cold laminator. That means no cords to plug in, no waiting for it to heat up, and no damaging of photos or other printed materials due to heat. There are also no icky fumes and no peeling edges from cut pieces. The laminate is also environmentally safe, acid-free and non-toxic which is nice.

This laminator is also portable and requires no batteries, heat or electricity.  It operates simply by hand with no fumes or mess. And as I will show in the video, it doesn’t gunk up your scissors or trimmers. The lamination is also photo safe and can be used for for a variety of documents up to 8.5″ wide. As a homeschooler we mainly use it for laminating things we want to make more durable, or re-use such as handwriting worksheets, etc. But it’s also great for items that need protection, including certificates, manuals and diagrams. The Xyron ezLaminator™ also comes pre-loaded with a 15′ long starter cartridge of two side laminating material.

CORRECTION: The 9″ adhesive refill does NOT ‘t fit in the ezLaminator, just the 5″ adhesive refill. Sorry for any confusion!

  1. I’ve never heard of this before until I watched your video! I am a laminating addict lol. I have a thermal laminator that I love but this would be so much more convenient not having to wait for mine to heat up. Thank you for doing this amazing giveaway!

  2. Are refills for this one still available at Joann’s? I got coupons but I don’t see any refills for the ezlaminator. Will refills for any of the other models work? (Such as, Xryon 510, 900, 850, 1200)
